[prMac.com] Orchard Park, New York - MobileApp Systems LLC, a developer of mobile software and hardware solutions for demanding applications, today is proud to announce the immediate availability of iLuaBox version 1.2, a Lua scripting environment running on all Apple iOS 4.2+ compatible devices.
Lua is a powerful, fast, lightweight, embeddable scripting language. It has been used in many industrial applications, with an emphasis on embedded systems and games. iLuaBox is a full-featured implementation of the Lua Programming Language that's been optimized for iOS 4.2+ and all of Apple's iOS 4.2+ compatible devices.
"iLuaBox version 1.2 reaches an important milestone for expandability. In-App purchases of toolboxes that expand iLuaBox depth and functionality will give our users the choice to invest only in those features critical to their needs."
The Device and GUI toolboxes are the first of many iLuaBox expansions planned for release this year. Upcoming expansions include Location Toolbox, Communications Toolbox, and Printer Toolbox. iLuaBox is a universal application - expansions are purchased once and installable on all devices registered to the same App Store account.
The iLua Toolbox 1.1 (built-in) adds several utility functions for controlling iLuaBox core behavior such as screen mode, printing to the input screen, and reading the device file directory.
The new Device Toolbox 1.0 (In App purchase) adds a set of functions to iLuaBox for obtaining information about the device such as unique ID, assigned name, device model, operating system name and more.
The new GUI Toolbox 1.0 (In App purchase) adds a set of functions to iLuaBox for building graphical user interfaces. Available primitives include actionSheet, alertView, button, datePicker, imageView, label, pageControl, textField, textView, switch and more.
Recent improvements in version 1.2 also include new retina display optimized icons and expanded in-app documentation. iLuaBox features side-by-side text views that provide a simple yet powerful text user interface. Scripts can be edited and tested right on the iOS device. iLuaBox includes a solid reference manual and examples to get started quickly.
